The Department of Psychiatry Residency Program will be recruiting 7 residents ( 5 Canadian and 2 international medical graduates) through the Canadian Matching System - CaRMS and the Centre for the Evaluation of Health Professionals Educated Abroad (CEHPEA). The focus of residency training at Queens is to achieve clinical and academic excellence in an inter-professional collaborative care setting. For the first two years of their residency, residents gain core competencies. As senior residents, they are able to take elective time and sub-specialize in their preferred area.

The small size of our residency program provides supervision from some of the best clinicians and/or academic psychiatrists in Canada. You get to know a wide range of mental health professionals and gain exposure to all the relevant areas of clinical and academic psychiatry. At the end of your residency you will have had more hands on patient time and teacher interaction than residents receive at most other Canadian institutions.

The Department works in a fully transparent manner with regards to employment status, and policies on promotions, access to research facilities, and assistance for new faculty spouses and families.

The Faculty Recruitment and Support Office provides prospective faculty members with information on life at Queen's and in the Kingston community, and assists new faculty members and their families with the relocation process. Services are confidential.
